Mike and Virginia (Opening Night)

This play has just been added to our line up for 2013, but some of you saw a play reading of it last year. It is a fun romantic comedy, and I think opening night will be a blast! Ilona will host it, so join her for a chat before the show and the opening night party after!

Tickets are $46 Adults, $38 Student and Senior, $39 Group, $33 Friends of Circa, $25 Under 25s. Let me know what ticket price you qualify for when you RSVP - I will get in touch via email once the tickets are booked and ready to be paid for.

Cheers,
Cara

A Romantic Comedy About Romantic Comedy

“Let us consider the ludicrous nature of romantic comedy…”

So begins this fast-moving romp of a play from two of New Zealand's busiest screenwriters. Kathryn Burnett (The Strip; Amazing Extraordinary Friends; The Cult) and Nick Ward (Stickmen, Second Hand Wedding and Love Birds) who have set out to explore and subvert every romantic comedy convention in the book resulting in a love story that is smart, funny and surprisingly tender.

Mike and Virginia are both single. Both competitive. Both lecturers in film studies. Her specialty is romantic comedy, his is monster movies. She thinks he's an arrogant knuckle-dragger, he thinks she's a bitter cow. The very worst thing they could do is fall in love.

A romantic comedy... about romantic comedy, Mike and Virginia is an evening of unabashed entertainment for lovers and cynics alike.

    I'm just posting this here as well as sending an email, as I think some people might not receive our emails:

    RSVPs have now closed for opening night of Mike and Virginia, so if you have indicated that you intend to attend, please pay for your ticket by 3pm on Wed, 20 March at the latest by calling 801-7992. Any tickets not paid for by then will be released for general sale. Opening night is already sold out, so we cannot hold tickets for longer than this. If you have not yet provided me with your contact information and this is your first Meetup with this group, please make sure to send it to me before Wednesday in order to be booked in. Ilona will be in the alcove in the foyer at 7pm if you would like to join her for a pre-show chat and drink. The show starts at 7:30 pm. After the show, please stay for a complimentary drink and nibbles in the conservatory for the opening night party.

    If you have any questions, please let me know. Otherwise, enjoy the show!

    Cheers,
    Cara
